Rooms are very clean and spacious. The only minor issue we had were a bunch of ants :-) but we weren't so disturbed by this as they wouldn't crawl into bed; anyway housekeeping took care of it...We also had a balcony with a table and chairs.
The hotel in itself is elegant, although a bit kitschy in some aspects(huge painting with ducks in the lobby or something...). Service is ok - I went in the bar for a coffee and there was nobody around; when the bartender came he offered it on the house because he had kept me waiting (nice gesture).
Breakfast has a wide offer of sweets (croissants, danishes, muffins, pies) but only one type of ham and one type of cheese which, for a country with so many assortments, seems a little poor. Otherwise, food is fresh and very ok.
It's true that they are not very close to the beach, but they have a free shuttle that can take you there at certain hours, and the trip takes 5 mins, so there was no setback here.
We were here at the end of August (very hot) and although they have a pool I haven't seen anyone there, don't know why.
All in all, it is a very good option for accommodation in the area, probably the best you will find.
